30 Nov winter skin care essentials
Winter can only mean one thing, freaking cold. With dropping temperatures and humidity plunging low, this weather leaves our skin dry and itchy. Normal moisturiser is not good enough to protect and nourish your skin. I don’t know about you but during winter I like to moisturise my body at least twice a day. Dry skin can also be super annoying and cause more complications like cracked and inflammation.
I still remember my first winter in Europe. I was so cold and lazy all the time. Haha… Growing up in the tropical, I didn’t know what to expect. I struggled the first 2 months to figure out my beauty regime to suit the weather. I ended up trying lots of different products — herbal oils, vegan/organic creams, body butter, moisturising foundation etc etc… When you have difficult skin like mine – sensitive, oily and dry. It might take some time to find the right products. Out of my own experience, I learnt that a little hope and patience could finally get you there. Its usual for your skin to react initially. Don’t freak out. Instead give your skin some time to get use to the new brand. Don’t expect instant results and follow a consistent routine.
I still thank that day when I was first introduced to this brand. Forest Essential takes the holistic approach to beauty care and uses the traditional method of Ayurveda. There products are based on organic pressed oils, which are 100% free from arabens, Petroleum, GMO, Formaldehyde, PEGS, artificial colour synthetic fragrance and animal testing
- Velvet silk body cream: This body butter is a real miracle. This is perfect for someone with dry skin. It’s particularly hard to find a good moisturiser for a dry skin that is non greasy. This body butter is very nourishing, absorbs quickly leaving your skin smooth and silky. Best thing about this is it’s non greasy and keeps my skin nourished for long. This cream also helped lighten my stretch marks. So, If you are a fitness freak like me and are prone to stretch marks, than this body cream is a blessing.
Forest Essential – I hope you do more sizes in them. I particularly would like a bigger tub since I tend to use a lot.
Sanjeevani Beauty Elixir: This cream is light and yet very hydrating. Also provides protection against winter sun and has anti ageing properties. I have been using this cream for almost 2 years and I am very happy with it. During winter you could use few drops with your foundation and apply on the face. This keeps my skin hydrated longer and helps prevent skin flaking.
